Former Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has hailed the impact of Chelsea locker room especially Didier Drogba on his career.

Lukaku who joined Chelsea from Anderlecht in 2011 told Bleacher Report that Chelsea locker room at that time made him the person he is today.

“I was only 18 years old, I had just finished high school three months earlier, I had graduated and suddenly I was already on the train to London,” he said, as quoted by Goal.

“There I met Didier Drogba, he was doing physiotherapy. He told me immediately that I had to show him the ‘Blue’ character. From that day on, we started talking every day for at least an hour, before training, after training.

“He, Anelka and every other player in that locker room showed me what it takes to become the person I am today. It wasn’t so much the coach as the players, they had a mentality that made them say ‘OK, let’s go win’.

“It was a great experience, I saw how they won the Champions League, the FA Cup and this has served me well so far.”

Chelsea sold Romelu Lukaku to Everton for a fee of £28 million in 2014.
